The Oklahoma Sooners and Kansas State Wildcats face off on Saturday in a Big 12 college basketball showdown at Bramlage Coliseum. When these two teams faced off on January 1st it was Oklahoma that won 71-69.
Elijah Harkless was the top player for Oklahoma scoring 21 points. Mark Smith was the top player for Kansas State scoring 25 points.
Oklahoma comes into this game with a 16-14 record and they have gone 13-16-1 against the spread. Even though they have been a bit inconsistent this season they have won two games in a row. In the last game against West Virginia, the defense was elite giving up only 59 points and that led to the 13 point victory. Oklahoma is averaging 68.5 points while their defense is giving up 64.7 points per game. Tanner Groves has been the top player for Oklahoma averaging 12.3 points while shooting 54.2 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Kansas State Wildcats who sit with a 14-15 record overall and they have gone 15-12-2 against the spread. Just a few weeks ago it looked like Kansas State might be a tournament team but now they are going to need to win the BIg 12 tournament to get in. Kansas State has lost four games in a row and in the last game against Texas Tech it was a five point loss. Kansas State is averaging 69 points while their defense is giving up 66.9 points per game. Nijel Pack has been the top player for Kansas State averaging 17.7 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field.
Oklahoma is 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games. Oklahoma is 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games against a team with a winning home record. The over is 4-0 in Kansas State’s last four games played on Saturday.
Kansas State hasn’t been winning games as of late, but they have been competitive, and at home, they have played better this season. I expect Oklahoma’s offense is going to struggle and that is going to be the difference as Kansas State gets the job done. Back Kansas State against the spread.
